PatientSafe Solutions and Meritus Medical Center Partner to Implement the PatientTouch(TM) Platform
Mar 4 13
PatientSafe Solutions announced it has partnered with Meritus Medical Center to implement the PatientTouch(TM) platform throughout the hospital. PatientTouch enhances an existing electronic medical record installation with an interoperable, PatientSafe Solutions-developed hardware and software solution that enhances patient safety, reduces waste, and improves staff productivity and satisfaction. PatientSafe and Meritus Medical Center are currently rolling out PatientTouch across the hospital's 272-bed hospital facility in Hagerstown, Maryland. PatientTouch delivers significant benefits for healthcare organizations by deploying smart, mobile technology tools at the point of care. The platform runs on a PatientSafe Solutions-designed, developed, and supported device that pairs Apple iOS hardware with enhancements including a high-performance barcode scanner, full-shift battery, and ruggedized, hospital-grade jacket. PatientTouch leverages an existing EMR system to eliminate harm, reduce waste, and improve productivity through a set of intuitive, dynamic software applications. Specific capabilities include performing barcode positive patient identification (PPID), streamlining data entry, promoting improved collaboration across physically separated care teams, fostering improved care quality and more meaningful clinician-patient relationships through increased face-to-face interaction, and more. A 272-bed, not-for-profit hospital facility in Hagerstown, MD, Meritus Medical Center faced a number of challenges in maximizing the value and leveraging the full capabilities of its existing Meditech EMR implementation. The hospital sought to implement a technology that could safeguard patient safety and streamline care coordination across multiple departments, including acute care, special care nursery, Level III trauma, oncology, and stroke units, among others. It also sought to demonstrate Meaningful Use Stage 2 compliance without sacrificing the resources already committed to its existing EMR implementation. With PatientTouch, Meritus Medical Center will now be able to harmonize nursing communications, tasks, and functions on a single platform through its entire facility, and will also have the updated features necessary for Meaningful Use Stage 2 certification. The implementation at Meritus Medical Center also marks the first deployment of PatientTouch's oncology-specific applications, which include features and capabilities specifically designed for oncology nurses and physicians. In particular, the ability to define chemotherapeutic-agent-specific reminders improves safety and efficiency by prompting the nurse to assess specific patient responses at specific times, to optimally monitor for potential adverse events. The assessed responses are then automatically documented and associated with the administration, and are immediately available to the physician and other caregivers.

Clinical Communication and Collaboration Platform; HIPAA-compliant, secure text messages for inpatient care team, Voice-over-IP communication with clinical presence, Multimedia capture - photos, video, voice recording, Consolidated safety and quality alerting and reminders across clinical status and alarms and Unified inbox, caregiver to-do's, and assignment. PatientTouch delivers demonstrable benefits to hospitals and healthcare organizations. In an internal study of 66 sites, health systems that implemented PatientTouch saw a 97% average workflow compliance rate with any workflows they chose to instrument on the platform. In separate PatientSafe Solutions-sponsored studies, health systems also experienced a 90%+ reduction in medication errors at administration, a 78% improvement in proportion of value-added tasks within the nurse work environment, and significant improvement in nursing documentation timeliness and completeness. The PatientTouch platform is currently in use at more than 66 hospitals and healthcare organizations across the country. More than 5,000 PatientTouch mobile devices are in use every day.
